If this card is sent to the Graveyard: You can Special Summon 1 Dragon-Type monster from your hand. You cannot Special Summon monsters, except Dragon-Type monsters, nor conduct your Battle Phase, the turn you activate this effect. You can only use this effect of "Kidmodo Dragon" once per turn.
Special summoning Apocralyph using Kidmodo will let you summon it in defense position, preventing you from taking damage if it gets attacked. On your turn, you will be able to activate Aporcralyph's effect to return Kidmodo back to your hand.
If Kidmodo gets destroyed during your opponent's battle phase, you can special summon Darkstorm from your hand, and normal summon it on your next turn. This will enable his effect so you can destroy all spell/trap card your opponent controls.
You can bring more Kidmodo in your deck, or use Dust Knight instead. Use the flip effect when it gets attacked instead of flip summoning this card, so you can still conduct your battle phase, or special summon other Dragon monsters.
Summoning high level normal Dragon-type monsters can be a good option as well. Combine this with Champion's Vigilance so you can get an early control over your opponent's actions.
Cannot conduct Battle Phase
Special Summons from your hand / Prevents your Special Summons
someone explain this to me. I'm running a toon deck with these in it but everytime I sacrifice a kidmdo to special summon a toon, it's effext doesn't activate. TBC my deck has BEWD and tyrant dragon in it and i'm fully aware it wont special summon blue eyes toon dragon
Is this a bug? I noticed this when auto duel SD. The AI summon kidmodo in attack position and suicide by attacking a monster. When kidmodo sent to graveyard, the game didn't prompt me to activate its effect, anyone notice this?
The bug is A.I suiciding the Kidmodo dragon for nothing. The text says you cant conduct battle phase the turn you activate the effect. This means that if you used kidmodo to suicide attack you have already conduct battle phase so the effect cannot be activated.
